  1. Werregue Basket  Colombia Medium Museum Quality
    $280.00
    The Werregue Baskets are beautiful and intricately hand woven. They are made by the Waunana Indians (sometimes referred to as Wounana Indians), of the San Juan River Delta in Northern Colombia. These baskets are woven from the fibers of the Werregue Palm, using a spiral tightly woven technique, and were originally produced by the Waunana women to use as vessels to carry water from the river. Each vase can take from 30 to 60 days to weave by hand, depending on the size and design details. The original white fiber of the Werregue Palm is combined with fibers naturally dyed with pigment from such organic sources as Annatto Seeds and the juice of the Jagua fruit. The Indians have also branched out from the traditional baskets, to make dishes and plates, combining the palm fibers with the actual wood of the Werregue Palm tree. The Werregue Baskets from the Waunana Indians are considered to be the finest baskets made in Colombia. Learn More
